This is the last drawing in the course! I have recreated every illustration in the Famous Artist Cartoon Course. BUT my Master study is still far from being finished. Next up is to complete the final assignment given in the Lesson. Then from there I am going to take the lesson ever further with some additional studies that I will talk about in the future. Stay tuned.
“The man on the street will never know how much lies behind your simple girls drawing.” This is a drawing Study I did from the Famous Artist Cartoon Course Lesson 7 “Drawing Pretty Girls.” The purpose of this study is to pose the figure with the correct tilt of the shoulder and hips. If the right shoulder is down the right hip will be up as long as the figure’s weight is center on the right foot.
This drawing study is out of the Famous Artist Cartoon Course lesson 7 “Drawing Pretty Girls.” This study is looking at how the breast affect the clothing and how the breasts can be accentuated with the placement of the folds and pull on the drapery.
Today is the day everyone has been waiting for drawing the Breasts. I am working through the Famous Artist Cartoon Course lesson 7 “Drawing Pretty Girls.” In this study we establish on the average woman the nipple line of the breast falls just below two head lengths from the top of the figure. The course recommends moving the nipple line up to exactly two head lengths in order to “idealize” the figure. The nipple line falling just below two head lengths from the top of the figure does seem to be an accurate measurement on most people I’ve drawn from life and has been a useful measurement to memorize.
Today’s drawing study is done out of the famous artist cartoon course. In this study we are looking at the hair as a large shape and illustrating the difference between a mens hair cut and women’s hair should take up half the head.
Yesterday I posted Day 11 of the Drawings I did as I work through the Famous Artist Cartoon Course. Unhappy with how my drawings turned out I redrew those illustrations today. I’m not really sure they turned out better but I am glad I gave it another shot. Improvement requires repetition.
Today as I continue through the Famous Artist Cartoon Course we are drawing the head using the oval shape as a starting point and rotating it inorder to achieve different perspectives and angles of the head. The follow illustrations are free hand recreations I did of Joe Kings drawings from the course.
Today is working on construction of the head based on the fundamental oval shape and building it up. This set of drawings is a free hand recreation I did out of the Famous Artist Cartoon Course Lesson 7 “Pretty Girls” original illustrations by Joe King.
Today begins the study drawing the face and head which according to the Famous Artist Cartoon Course Lesson 7 “Pretty Girls” is one of the four parts to drawing a pretty girl. In this first exercise we are drawing a profile built off a basic oval shape and building the drawing on top of that.
According to the Famous Artist Cartoon Course Lesson 7 “The most successful method for drawing appealing babes is to pencil in the compete figure in the desired pose before attempting to clothe it. Clothes won’t hide a poor drawing of the figure underneath them.”
Todays drawing is a free hand recreation of Joe King’s illustration of a girl in a bikini signaling the reader or student to turn to the next page.
To improve in my ability to draw women I am working through lesson 10 of the Famous Artist Cartoon Course circa the late 1940s “Drawing Pretty Girls.”
Still working through the second page of the lesson. There is a black and white photograph of a Nude Woman. For todays exericse I did a free hand pencils study of the of the photograph as close to the actual photo as I could.
This is part II of my Interview with Local San Diego Artist Aj Fulcher all the Pencil drawings you see in this interview where done by A.J. for Strength Monsters comics. If you want to get a good idea of what the next two issues of my Strength Monsters comic books will be like then read this interview! I have a Kickstarter going right now for these comics and when you support stuff like this you aren’t just helping me finish the project you are supporting local guys like A.J. work towards their dreams and old timers like Mike Witherby make their comebacks! http://kck.st/1O4Ersu is the link to the Kickstarter it’s also at the beginning and end of the article attached below.
Illustration I did of the famous Catch Wrestling Hold Known As the Grovit circa 2012. As Jake Shannon gave testimony to here in his review of my Catch Wrestling Comic Book Strength Monsters I used to tell Billy about my ideas for comic books all the time.
Here’s the illustration in its entirety;
Here is a sketch I did for my Worlds Deadliest strip circa 2014 I have not yet published the strip that goes with this illustration. Stay tunes as I will be bringing the comic strip back by the end of the year!
Work in progress for Your Web Designer I’ll tight this guy up and tie him down tomorrow. This the quick sketch I did today inspired by an Al Feldstein Weird Fantasy Cover. If you don’t know who Feldstein is I suggest you learn! My recommendation is to pick up a copy of FELDSTEIN: The Mad Life and Fantastic Art of Al Feldstein! and start reading. A copy of The EC Archives: Weird Fantasy Volume 1 will get you on the right track as well.
